The Kingdom of Fife

I tend to think map postcards are a relatively recent development but this one showing Fife in Scotland must date from around 1910.  The publisher, John Walker and Co. was in business 1903 - 1910.


  1. Maps were such an innovation back then, so much so that many couldn't afford to have them. I guess this postcard allows the poor the experience a little bit of richness.

  2. I like maps - on postcards,tea towels, mugs - and this is so interesting.

  3. I wish I could get back to Scotland. My only time there was on a very short Trafalgar Tour many years ago. We spent only a day in Edinburgh and that certainly wasn't enough.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
